Now that I’m back from leave, I have a whole backlog of things to announce, but I wanted to get this one up quick: a group exhibition that I was invited to be a part of in Melbourne!
The work I’m contributing are gnomes from 2015’s Gnome Genome Project, but I also made these tiny eggs with legs to go in a capsule machine that the show will include.
Here’s all the show info:
